About

(
English
 | 
)
I am a licensed psychologist who specializes in a combination of individual & family therapy for the treatment of children & teens who have depressive, anxiety, stressor-related, conduct, or substance use disorders, as well as other social/behavioral difficulties & grief/loss/separation/divorce. I utilize an integrative theoretical approach informed by developmental, family systems, biopsychosocial, & cognitive-behavioral frameworks, including "3rd wave" acceptance & mindfulness-based approaches. I further emphasize thorough clinical assessment & accurate diagnosis to inform appropriate & evidence-based treatment.
I seek to help young people & family members move from responding to stress/adversity in reactive, rigid, distorted, or destructive ways & move towards responses that are pro-active, realistic, constructive, & goal-directed. I also emphasize parent management techniques & collaboration with school staff, etc. to help reinforce positive/adaptive behaviors.
I believe that through therapy, individuals & families can learn to identify & modify dysfunctional feedback loops; reduce reactivity/escalation; increase flexibility; enhance coping skills; & improve both communication & collaborative problem-solving. Please contact me if you have questions or if you think that I can be of assistance to you and your child.
